Covercentric: Sunday Girl Does Ke$ha
Sunday Girl, aka miss Jade Williams, has been on my pop watchlist for quite some time. Both her singles “Four Floors” and “Self Control” (a Laura Brannigan cover) are highly replay-able electro-pop music. To generate some “viral buzz”, she has recorded an acoustic cover of Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok”. I normally can’t stand Ke$ha’s music (bar “Your Love Is My Drug”, only for the awesome 808 drum bits), but Jade made it work. She’s got such a lovely voice, even though she still needs some work on her higher register… Video & mp3 after the jump.
Her version of MGMT’s “Time To Pretend” is also really good. I like that there’s some effort put into the production of these cover videos, instead of just your average webcam one.
I’ve heard her next single, “Stop Hey”, and it’s an effervescent ’80s number with big synth riffs. That one is coming out in October, I think, and she will be going on tour with Ellie Goulding & Bright Light Bright Light soon.
Make sure to check out her blog. I quite enjoy reading about her little DIY arts & crafts projects and her quirky obsession with collars.
